More time to take it all in. Two people with a combined weight of 300 lbs or less can fit side by side in the back seat. Larger frames will necessitate single passenger flights.
Schweizer 2-33 Trainer Solo Rental
$55 per hour flown. You must be previously checked out in our Schweizer 2-33 to book this aircraft. See our instruction information on the main website if you have not yet been checked out in our 2-33. Tows are charged separately based on tow heights. See website for details. Booking by the hour, but you will ONLY be charged for glider flight time. Please book consecutive blocks as necessary, and attempt to preflight your aircraft prior to the beginning of your reservation to ensure you have sufficient time to fly! Things always take longer on the ground than you might expect.
